The Google Glass, a wearable microcomputer, consists of a silver and black colored headset with an optical display (glass), worn like a pair of glasses. The wearer communicates with the Internet via touch and voice commands. Information is displayed on the glass (screen) mounted just above the right eye or it may be read to the wearer. The power button is located on the inner side near the temple. The device is designed with built in camera (for pictures and videos, located on the front next to the glass) and a speaker (located on the inner side of the arm, behind the right ear). The battery is located near the end of the right arm.
Accessories included are two carrying cases, clear shield with protective case, sun shades with a protective case, power adapter, USB power cord, and nose guards.
